  1. I just added a button maker to the forum's post editor! It is the little gray rectangle next to the emoji icon in the post editor...just click it when typing a post and fill in the title and URL that the button should link to and DONE! You can also choose color and sizes if you wish! It's just a little way to make your links stand out in a post or a way to add a garage button, etc... Enjoy! Community Map

  2. I live in a rural area that is 250+ miles away from a city of any size. Over the past 15 years I have picked up new and used things here and there for my mustang build. I have a pretty respectable pile of things that I won't ever use (fiberglass hood, rear sportsroof glass, decent fender etc...). I also have a bunch of small stuff that makes no sense to resell like various AMK fasteners. Here is the deal. It is all free - one big lot of stuff. You show up, we load stuff in your pickup or trailer. Take it all, even the stuff you have no use for, you must take everything I load up in your ride. There isn't any junk. I am not going to list out everything but it does include the Maier fiberglass hood I have. Pickup has to be during daylight hours on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Whatever you bring to pick up the parts must be large enough to transport a hood, fender, back glass and at least 100 pounds of other bits. I am about 30 minutes South of the CA/OR border on I5. If you are serious about a road trip, or will be passing through for some other reason get ahold of me. I want to reclaim some garage and attic space.

  3. Well a while ago, I started the hunt for new seats for the Mach 1. Mine are in good shape, but Id like to keep them that way and also wanted something a little more supportive with some bolstering. I had looked at some aftermarket options, but didnt think they fit the look of the car. Thats when I managed to find a set of Recaros out of a Fox body. Which also happened to be the same seats that my first Mustang had(an 82 GT). So I picked them up since they are a nice easy swap, but decided to get them recovered to look like the originals. I ordered the fabric from SMS, and a friend of the family does upholstery so once it showed up I dropped everything off and she started working on it. And now the time has come. She said the seats should be ready tomorrow and sent me a pic. I am really happy with how they are turning out so far. Also got the seat buttons engraved with mine and my dads initials since it was originally his car. So figured I would drop a little teaser here.

  4. I thought about it... but, my space is full. I'm closer to Toronto and we did not get the heat bubble that the West got. Unusual for sure, with some of those temperatures. Some like to call it Global Warming... Think I will go out and start the mustang, lol.

  5. Interesting. I have those in my 71 but nothing there. I ended up adding a pin switch on that bump for an alarm, which works great. Maybe it was meant for a trunk light switch or something.

  7. Glad to hear, you are good there! Yes, the weather has gone crazy this year - in Europe we got flooded since weeks and you are baked on the other side! Hope this will be not normality in future... Keep safe and take care, Geoff!

  8. Tim, glad that is a help for you and I hope, kcmash as well, not heard from him yet. As for the weather, in my area it has not been nearly as hot as "out west" where it hit 49.6 C in a small town in BC, just before most of that town was destroyed by a wild fire. Very tragic, but it seems all but 2 people got out in time. Locally, it's been the humidity that has been really draining on us, 32 C or 90F deg and 80% humidity. Now rain and heavy T storms. The weather has gone nuts!!

  9. Silicone acts as a lubricant allowing the seal to slide across the painted surfaces. Helps more with door seals and such, but I apply it to the trunk seal as well.

  10. Mine has enough free play that I can pull the cluster out far enough to get my hand behind it to squeeze the tab and release it. Someone may have replaced yours with one that is too short. If it's not hung up on something you may have to disconnect it from the transmission so you can pull it into the cabin.

  11. Well it was 19 liters actually which equals 5 US gallons and yes as the tank is a 20 US gallon tank, it's the last quarter that's the most important (so you don't unexpectedly run out!!) It's a while ago now, but if I remember, I needed to adjust the float arm by bending it upward slightly. I don't really understand the Ohms thing to adjust by resistance, so it's trial and error I'm afraid. It IS a PITA to have to raise and lower the car a couple of time I'll agree, but it worked out. Whether you need adjust the arm up or down will depend on the initial reading. It may well be right strait out of the box. Again if I remember, mine read high @ 1/4 tank. Hope that helps.

  12. I recently replaced the one I installed in 2006. Didn't add any holes, but did leave about an 1/8" gap at the butt ends by the latch to allow air to escape. If you butt those ends, the seal becomes a balloon. I installed the seal and left the trunk closed for a couple weeks. It's still a bit tough to close, but with the right effort it's not a problem. One thing many miss is to lubricate the seals with silicone.

  15. Great story man! I love the first bit of drive time was rolling off the trailer!! Haha, I’ll dig up some old pics of my car from the time I bought it and post in a bit.

  16. It's very difficult to find a good machine shop these days.. The machinists just don't have the background needed to do quality work anymore due to our throw-away society.. If an engine goes bad now, it just gets replaced..
